Schools Outreach for Access to Oxford University


Three Shires no longer runs school events.

For information on admission to Oxford please see here.

The university runs various outreach programmes which can be found here.


Please remember that there are many myths about Oxford admissions to be found in the media.  If you can make the grade you stand as much chance as anyone else of getting in, however if you do not apply then you will not get in.  All of us found our years at Oxford to be very rewarding.  


Oxford has a system of “Link Colleges” where individual colleges are allocated to different parts of the country.

You can find the list here, with details of the admissions office for your school to contact.

For the Three Shires area:

Bedfordshire: Wadham College

Buckinghamshire: Somerville College

Northamptonshire: Worcester College

Your Link College can tell you about events for teachers and opportunities for you to take groups of students to visit Oxford or for an Oxford representative to come to your school.
